What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Hays

It is close to gas stations and grocery stores which is nice, as well as some other stores. There's several different types of apartments which make the neighborhood unique

Not that unique, small town, but very nice low crime, safe to be out at night. Safe for children to play.

My neighbors are cool and most of them are pretty nice. Some of them are really weird tho so idk.&:&/&

nice friendly people nice friendly pets. (Dogs) and the scenery is so green. Everyone works together to help eachother our.

I have professional homeowners living all around me. They take care of their yards. I also have a nice mix of elderly owners who are nice and quiet just the way I like it.
